Cicero’s important classic and esteemed edition of Jacques Proust author of Diderot et L’Encylopedie. Cicero’s De oratore ("On the Orator") is a moral and political dialogue written by Cicero in 55 BCE. It is set in 91 BCE when Lucius Licinius Crassus died, just before a social war and civil war broke out between Marius and Sulla, and during which Marcus Antonius Orator, the other great orator of this dialogue, died. Cicero wrote De Oratore to describe the idyllic Marcus Antonius and imagine him as a philosophic and moral guide of the state. Bookseller Inventory # D2474
